The actions of Amilici teach us something about the nature of those who seek to acquire power over us (a perpetual threat, unfortunately). First, they will seek to persuade us voluntarily cede power over to them. Then they will compete politically to acquire power. Then they will resort to lawlessness in order to illegitimately acquire power.
We fool ourselves to think that those who continue the War in Heaven between agency and compulsion will meekly give up this pursuit when they are defeated in the arena of ideas or in the ballot box. The fight is everlasting, and we cannot in good conscience sit it out.
